(Hhe iReiitstrar 

Here with a feathered Quill at Learning's gate 
I hold the fort in Paradisal state; 
At nine a.m. I don my Halo smartly 
And until five I answer questions tartly. 

'Tis thus I spend the dreary winter days, 
Interpreting the Calendanal Maze; 
My eyes beam forth a frigid steely glitter 
That silences all undergraduate twitter. 

But ever as the seasons bring the spring 
I feel at one with every sentient thing, 
And supervise a sort of Incubation 
The net result of which is Graduation. 

Thus once a year I really vie with God 
And bring forth Graduates like peas in pod ; 
By sheer creative act I make Mentality 
Which goes in time to form a nationality. 

But, truth to tell, the strain of it is great, 
To God I'd gladly leave it to create; 
For I by temperament do find it meeter 
To emulate on earth the Holy Peter. 

Jani un , 1918. 


Next on the stage Histoncus appears 
And gracefully his learning's load he bears. 
Broad black-beribboned tortoiseshell his nose 
Bestrides, while on his neat bespatted toes 
He prances as the intermittent flow 
Of wit and wisdom fills the brains below. 
Now against Patronage he lifts his arm 
With threatening gesture, now upon his farm. 
While Marmaduke and Algernon display 
Their sad propensities, he fills his day 
And serves his country by conserving food. 
But most his soul with liberal arts endued 
Delights to foster music's softer charms 
With tuneful din to wake the street's alarms — 
A cry that shivers to the tingling skies — 
While Robert's wail antiphonal replies!

(§b\ prnfamim 

The touches of our native speech 
Perplex his unacquainted tongue. 

Through all his lectures is a sound 
Of Irony. He is not young 

And foolish. Arbiter is he 

Of Elegancies to a crude 
And new Philistia, in arts 

Untrained, in humane letters rude. 

Beneath the uncouth shock of hair 

He sees the artist's budding dreams, 

In clothes of rustic cut discerns 

The Poet pushing through the seams. 

The poetaster who indites 

Sonnets galore and wants to sell 'em, 
Will find no publisher unless 

His stuff is countersigned by Pelham. 

(With apologies to Francis Thompson). 

March, 1918. 

(Erttba Biro Itrtfrsque &rnrrtus 

With missionary zeal of yore 
He left the land of Albion to 

Proclaim the need of Grecian lore 
To budding heathens in Toronto. 

And still each morn, as years ago. 
His long-famihar figure passes 

Upright, majestic, with a slow 

And thoughtful stride to meet his classes. 

And still the Oxford tongue has he, 
With courage and success spectacular, 

Preserved unsoiled, and steadfastly 
Eschewed Ontario vernacular. 

And every lad and every lass 

(Despite the fact 'tis Greek he teaches) 
His wisdom can recall in class, 

His wit in after-dinner speeches. 

January, 1930. 


His soul was like a star and dwelt apart. 
Far from the fretted sines, 

Where Eireann whispers to the listening heart 
In mystic shrines. 

His body in the class-room's cloudy spaces 
Taught higher mathematics. 

Half-conscious of the vague perplexed faces, 
Expounded statics. 

His dulcet voice above the Open Forum, 
'Mid Bolshevist outpourings 

Taught Russian Jews and Labour men decorum, 
And stilled their roarings. 

But spirit-bound with Yeats in lnnisfree 

His bean-rows seven 
Prove to him belter than geometry 

That Ireland's heaven.

®l?p feat 

When the student's last essay is written, 

And no flaws remain to amend, 
When English groups never are smitten 

With silence, and always attend; 
When Canadians never are wanting 

In courage to say what they please ; 
When wealth has renounced the bold flaunting 

Of its useless existence of ease; 
Then this sage, somewhat after the fashion 

Of the Imperial lord of his name, 
May find cause for lamenting and passion 

In the lack of a new world to tame.

His habits are by no means like the bear's; 

He hibernates up north the livelong summer, 
And southward at September's close repairs, 

To fill the post of literary drummer. 

His labours practical with drum and quill 
Leave little space for hobbies sentimental; 

Yet in spare time, they say, he dabbles still 
In history and lingoes oriental. 

With feet on desk, with pipe in mouth, he dreams 

Aloud to rows of votaries ecstatic; 
And from his lips pour forth commingled streams 

Of fragrant smoke and language Asiatic. 

Claudel and Francis Thompson, golf and tea, 
Gossip, tobacco, book reviews, divinity — 

A motley throng of interests has he; 

His single brain can compass all infinity.

$5,000 from PELMANISM 

Incomes Trebled and Quadrupled 

LETTERS reach the Pelman Institute every day from men 
and women who have trebled and quadrupled their 
incomes by means of this most remarkable system. 

In one case the writer says that he is now earning six times 
his previous income as the result of the increased efficiency 
this training has given him. 

Other letters say how their writers have caught the eye of 
their superiors and have been promoted over the heads of 
many of their co-workers simply because of the qualities 
they have developed by means of Pelmanism. 

One business man in a letter reprinted below states that he 
has made $5,000 in a single year as a result of enrolling for 
the Pelman Course. 

Some people, knowing the great educational value of 
Pelmanism and the way it enables men and women to broaden 
their intellectual outlook, to increase their knowledge of 
literature, art, and science, to become good conversationists, 
and to cultivate the social arts, have thought that this is 
all that Pelmanism does. 

This is not the ease. Pelmanism does all this. It develops 
the "higher values" of life. But it does more. It develops 
your business capacity as well. This is the most important at 
the present time. Industry to-day needs keen, efficient minds. 
It needs them more now than it ever did. And Pelmanism 
makes you keen and efficient. It enables -you to take full 
advantage of the opportunities for advancement now afforded 
by the Business World. So if you wish to advance your fin- 
ancial position, as well as your social position, you should 
certainly apply for particulars of the Pelman Course. 
They will be sent you gratis and post free on application to 
the address printed below. This is an opportunity no one can 
afford to neglect. "Write or call for these free particulars 


Great Opportunity for Those Who Wish to Rise 

to a Higher Position. 


Many people nowadays are living half -lives. They are not 
progressing as they ought to do. They are not concentrating 
their energies on a single goal. They are allowing their 
minds to stray in different directions. Consequently, although 
the cost of living is continually rising, their incomes are not 
keeping pace with rising prices. In other words, they are 
falling behind. They are not in such a good position as they 
were even a few months ago. 


Pelmanism alters all this. It enables you to put forth your 
full powers. It enables you to save waste of time and energy. 
It gives you the power to take on work previously beyond 
your capacity, and it enables you to do this work well and 
to make good. 

That is why Pelmanists in every profession, business, and 
occupation are forging rapidly ahead, trebling and quadrup- 
ling their incomes and securing swift promotion to higher 
positions of responsibility. The value of Pelmanism is very 
quickly shown by the figures in your bankbook. 


Bead, for example, the following letters — just a few taken 
at random from the piles of similar communications which 
reach the Pelman Institute every day: — 

"Please accept my best thanks. . . . I have improved 
300% in salary." 

From a CLERK. 

$5,000 FROM AN IDEA. 
"I have cleared over $5,000 from en idea which material- 
ised by the Pelman methods, so you will understand better 
than I can write it the gratitude I feel towards the Pelman 

From PELMANIST M.10,527. 

$5,000 BENEFIT. 
"In $ and c. I benefit to the extent of $5,000 at least this 
year. That is not a boast, but true business fact, and I can 
prove it. . . . When I go abroad, as I do a good deal, or 
if I feel out of sorts, down in the mouth, etc., I have a good 
dose of Lesson V. Lesson V. is always in my kit-bag on my 
foreign travels." 

From an IMPORTER. 
"Since I commenced your Course of Instruction my effi- 
ciency has vastly increased. My income has gone up 300%. 
... I attribute all this to the Pelman Course. ' ' 


"When engaging a secretary some months ago I was told, 
in reply to my inquiry as to whether the candidate claimed 
intelligence, that she was an enthusiastic Pelman student. I 
engaged her upon the spot, subject to references, and my 
decision has been more than justified." 


INCREASE OF $1,000. 
' ' I have benefited very greatly on the financial side, having 
just received a rise in salary of $1,000 a year, bringing me up 
to $2,750, a figure undreamt of a year or so ago. I consider 
that the Pelman Course is, from the standpoint of money 
alone, a most profitable investment, and from the intellectual 
standpoint a veritable resurrection of the mind."
